Default Gay being targeted? Think again

for those of you that think gay is the main target of opposing QBs, think again. for those who think mcfadden is missed, think again.

http://pit.scout.com/2/926374.html

Scout.com's Ed Thompson takes a look at the three cornerbacks, safeties and linebackers that NFL quarterbacks have gone after with no mercy this season. And he points out which players at each position are struggling the most when called upon to defend the pass.

Ike Taylor, Pittsburgh Steelers: Quarterbacks have gone after the seventh-year corner a 90 times this season, more than any other defender in the NFL. Taylor has allowed a league-high 54 catches (60 percent) for 679 yards and two touchdowns. He's broken-up 11 attempts.

Bryant McFadden, Arizona Cardinals: 87 passes have been thrown McFadden's way, and he's allowed 45 completions (51.7 percent) for 648 yards and a score. He's knocked away 13 throws.


you will also see in that link that ex-steelers' LB larry foote leads the league, for LBs, in getting burned the most by the pass, "...the Lions' Larry Foote has struggled the most with an 80.6 percent burned rate". 80.6%?

I've said that I thought Ike was having a bad year but I wasn't aware it was that bad. As far as Mcfadden he was no loss but that doesn't absolve Gay IMHO. He's still getting beat when they throw his way and not making easy tackles.

I think our D-fense as a whole isn't as good as last year but part of the reason for our bad cb play by both Ike and Gay is that our front seven don't seem to be getting to the qb as fast this year. Part of this could be attributed to injuries to Smith and Troy or just scheme IMHO.

That's like saying that one dog's manure stinks worse than another dog's manure.

They are both manure.

When a Defense doesn't go after the QB and gives him enough time to throw, any secondary will get beat more often than not. With Polamalu and Smith out, our defense looks completely ineffective.

I think Gay gets alot of heat because he plays off his guy more the Ike does.

This is the problem I believe. Our rush is just not quite getting there this year. With Troy in, we can recover or compensate for this. With Troy out, when the rush comes a little late it spells disaster. You really have to blame the whole unit as it should work as 1 like last year. It shows that when 1 or 2 critical pieces are missing the whole thing works like shit though.

We are tied for 2nd in sacks in the NFL. We are getting plenty of pressure. The DB's just can't cover. Other than Troy, they all are lower rung DB's.
